We knew Boston was going to be very strong up front with Eliud Kipchoge, Benson Kipruto, and Evans Chebet. They also added Tanzania's Gabriel Geay (2:03:00 in Valencia in December) and Herpasa Negasa (2:03:40 pb) for a total of four guys under 2:04.
For Americans, Scott Fauble is running (of course), and so is Conner Mantz. They were the US's two fastest marathoners last year so that should be a great head-to-head matchup. CJ Albertson, Ben True, Matt McDonald, Sam Chelanga and Nico Montanez are also entered.
Who do you have as top American, Fauble or Mantz?
